Xindi He


I’m a 5th year PhD candidate in the Joint Program in Financial Economics at The University of Chicago Booth School of Business and Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics. I received a B.A. in Economics from Guanghua School of Management, Peking University in 2018.


My research focuses on the interactions between asset prices, investor behaviors, and real activities. With emphasis on both theoretical modeling and empirical analysis, my current projects adopt an investor-centered perspective to unveil the financial and real consequences of the co-existence of full and limited rationality. Please contact me if you are interested in this research agenda.

In Fall 2020 and Winter 2022, I taught Elements of Economic Analysis II (Econ 20100) as a graduate lecturer for undergraduates at the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics (course evaluations: 2020, 2022). I also worked as a teaching assistant for Corporation Finance, Investments, Microeconomics, Advanced Microeconomic Analysis, and Introduction to Money and Banking. My current and future teaching materials can be found on this website.
